Was the controller used?

Do you have the software installed for it?

are you using vista or XP?

Also for some strange reason, the Wired Controller is supported by MS, but the Wireless one (with a wire plugged into it) isnt classified as a wired controller so hasnt got drivers (officially anyway)

Curious, if it isn't official why was I able to buy the controller and wireless controller adapter for my computer?

Ahh you've bought the wireless adapter for PC which has its own driver

What i was referring to was that you cannot use that same wireless controller on its wire on a pc without the adapter.
